International Children’s Rights day:
Urgency Identity Africa highlights “phantom children”
Urgency Identity Africa has partnered with BENIN ODD TV to produce a video highlighting the issues related to birth registration in Africa. The announcement of this collaboration comes at a time when the world is celebrating the International Day of the Rights of the Child on 20 November, as well as the 31st anniversary of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). This is an opportunity to remind everyone that children still face many difficulties as a result of not being legally registered, a notable one is access to citizenship which gives them access to basic fundamental rights.
